Love is divine. Anything that is not love, is not divine.
- What if God does not judge man?
- What if God empowers man to judge himself?
Imagine, if you will, a world in which all your desires are fulfilled. Everything you want, you are given. You only have visualise its image in ions, that is, use your imagination. The image manifests as strongly, and as often, as you want. You, and everyone else in such a world, can achieve, or choose to strive to achieve, fulfilment. You have the empowerment of choice. Welcome to The Desire World, a stepping stone between heaven and earth.
Mankind does not have the language to describe heaven. We are restricted to the limits, language and syntax of the mind, and its imagination. The Desire World is thus a manifestation of heaven, in terms that the human mind can understand. In it, matter manifests ethereally as if it were real, just like in the world around us, if you can imagine such a paradox?
For instance, imagine you wanted to climb a tall mountain. The climb would be arduous and difficult. Somehow you have just enough strength, endurance, technique and wisdom to make the climb – every time and anytime you want to. Eventually you exhaust all the possible climbs this mountain offers – the steep, the long, the quick and the gentle.
In another instance, you desire a mountain that might or might not exceed your climbing capabilities. You seek a challenge that might take you beyond the limits you set yourself. Let us say that your attempt to climb the mountain fails. You halt and turn back to base camp. Or perhaps you take a tumble and fall. You spend a night in the Desire World’s virtual hospital that you have already created – just in case of such a fall. The next morning you awake, fully repaired and ready for a new climb. For in this Desire World, you do not need insurance. You can protect yourself against all eventualities. You simply go there in your imagination and desire it.
You live a life without fear, hurt, anger or guilt – because everything untoward can be averted or put right with the snap of an imaginary finger. You live a life free from all that is not love. All that exists, in the Desire World, is divine. You live, as close to heaven as you can, on earth. You can choose anything intellectual or recreational you are passionate about, for example, mathematics, crosswords, music, football, sex, stamp collecting or organic farming (to name the first few things that came into my head). The Desire World was created for “part” of you to play in safely.
That “part” of you was, and still is, an archangel archetype. It appreciates fully, the notions of desire and, abundance for all – through a sense of “oneness.” But, as wonderful as this heaven on earth is, it has its limitations. You realise that a challenge, such as the mountain, was not a challenge after all. Because you preset the conditions and safeguards to the climb. You enjoy the fulfilment of your passion unhindered. You climb, not climb or select an unknown result to your climb by choice.
Should you fail in your climb, there is no loss of personal pride through defeat because there is only “oneness” in heaven. Everyone in The Desire World is intrinsically linked to everyone else, through spirit. Everything desired is abundantly available to everyone through their inherent oneness. Until you choose the desire to create an emotion that had not existed before – “separateness.”
The Archangel Michael sought to extend the challenges of the Desire World by desiring separateness with tangible and emotional trophies for victory – and penalties for failure, in the form of physical and emotional pain. Pain required separateness. Because oneness means when one suffers, all suffer.
“What is (not) good for you, is (not) good for everyone.”
Thus Michael created the double bind of separateness and pain. Personal differences in identity and power (but not honour) would evolve between entities. Separateness evolved during the latter phases of, what we call, mankind’s Lemurian Age and early phases of the subsequent Atlantean Age. By desire, separateness of consciousness designed a boundary between the individual and the divine. So God empowered man to create in his own image, with his own imagination, with his own image in ions.
Mankind was empowered to create its own boundaries. It created the walled Garden of Eden, Mother Nature. Mankind empowered itself with the will and imagination to create and destroy but by its own volition, mankind did not empower itself to transgress or destroy nature itself. And God never withdrew mankind’s nous to tear down the garden walls, ask Pink Floyd! J, the ticket price to return from separateness to oneness.
Seperateness means me and not me, you and not you. Mankind experienced duality for the first time. But it did not lose its capacity to experience the harmony of opposites. We create warm water by creating the right mix of hot and cold water that feels temperate to our skin. We enjoy the warmth of the sun by being shielded by nature or clothing from overexposure. Mankind may have developed separateness but it never lost its capacity for temperance. Thus temperance is a stepping stone between separateness and oneness.
Mankind evolved separateness of consciousness and the physical body to house it. Separateness of consciousness gave the individual the choice to experience personal victory at the expense of others – and block out the pain and suffering of others that their victory created.
Winning and losing, victory and defeat, joy and suffering became a personal experience. The notion of winning and losing fostered pride. From pride evolved upset: hurt, fear, anger and, later on (see next paragraph), guilt – the karmic seeds of not love.
As mankind evolved to separateness, it became more and more detached from Love. Self proclaimed political and religious leaders labelled aspects of not-love as sins. They introduced the notion of good and bad. Mankind thus evolved the notion of guilt. Individuals, representing God or the good, would judge others for their good deeds and their sins. Oligarchs would get man to feel bad about himself, which is the first step we use to control one another’s minds. And when we control someone’s mind, we disempower them. This is not God’s way, of right divine, of love.
Your works and your devotion, faithfulness,
Your drudgery and patience under stress,
And that your final deeds shall far outshine
The first ones, when you rule by right divine.
From The Message to the Hierarchy of Helios, the sun king and regent of the fourth chakra, the heart.
In the beginning Love resided at the heart of everything, at the core, or coeur. The core of every human is love. The core of our solar system, the sun, is love. The sun shines its light on everything and everyone, regardless of race, colour, creed, species, belief system or behaviour. The light of our truth is there to be seen unless we choose to shield our eyes from it. We receive light, or love, everyday. But we do not all accept it. those who do not choose not love.
Not love has no place in the heart (whichmay i remind you, judges not; it empowers). Instead mankind evolved the brain, the data processing centre for the mind, which became the domicile of personal joy and suffering – and the willingness to allow others to suffer through one’s petty personal desires.
Mankind’s personal desires to achieve and be victorious over one another evolved in the head. But here lies the rub. Victory, be it a football game or a world war brings short lived self gratification and, by contrast, long term suffering. The victor’s pride and sense of achievement dwindles.
Mankind creates trophies to preserve the pride of victory, and stores them on a shelf in a cabinet, in a trophy room. Visit Manchester United or Liverpool football clubs. They have many such trophies. But they are all history or past tense. They personify a phrase I used to hear in IBM Sales Mangement meetings, “you are only as good as your next sale – or game, in football speak.”
The meaning and power of a trophy, like any fresh food in a greengrocer shop, has a shelf life. We yearn to keep that sense of achievement and pride but we cannot. We want that feeling of victory and pride again. So we return to theatre of football or war to regain it.
We attempt to make the past tense present by winning another trophy. If we do not. our pride suffers. We get upset. So much so, we may seek revenge to regain our lost pride.
We see such wars today, based on the false ideals of right, wrong and of divine retribution, where both sides claim “God is on our side.” The victors store their trophies in the form of land, people and large private bank accounts stored away in remote untraceable bank vaults. We want more. We fight more.
And through repeated violence a minority of us has developed a lust for killing. Such is the nature of the physical world we have evolved. Such is the nature of separateness of consciousness without oneness.
By desire and design, separateness always has winners and losers until – as happened in the Desire World – mankind says
“Enough! I’ve had enough of winning and losing.
I can only exert a limited amount of power.
I can only spend a limited amount of money.
I can only create so much suffering before I kill off those over whom I am victorious.
I can only suffer so much when I lose.
I have exhausted all the possibilities of winning and losing in the Physical World.
I now choose temperance.
I return to the harmony of opposites, the yin and yang, the will and imagination, to return to The Desire World.”
Mankind arrives at the end of the game. The time has come to gather all the pieces, the money, the cards and board of play – and put them all back in the box from whence they came. Mankind passes the game on to the next species who seek to play with it.
And this is where mankind finds itself today, at its endgame. It has two choices:
- Destroy itself
- Collect and organise all the pieces of ourselves to go back to oneness, only wiser, much wiser. Because we fully appreciate oneness for what it is, not separateness.
We are either at the beginning of the end, or the end of the beginning – the never, or return to, forever.
We can choose heaven on earth.

About Quick Guide: How Top Salespeople Sell, "... a must read for both novice and experienced salespeople..." - Chiahou Zhang, Author
About Quick Guide: How Top Salespeople Sell, “I work for a large American IT company, and can say this is a hugely powerful book to articulate what is required to get to Board level. To really understand what the CEO and C level executive summarise as valuable and impactful, and in a condensed easy-to-digest format, is phenomenal. I find Paul C Burr's style of writing easier to digest and apply in any sales situation; it crystallises where the true business value add is delivered and how you really have strategic partnerships. I have just got number 2 book and look forward to reading this with excitement - which is saying something as my concentration span can be limited. Thank you.” - Amy Lambkin, Amazon review

"Letting go of fear and negativity, I feel like I am now seeing everything in glorious technicolour, have been given the space to dream and together with reciting the affirmations, I feel wonderful :-) "
Sameera de Silva, London
"I would like to thank Paul for sharing his impressive skills and enabling me to finally connect, and disconnect, with the last thread of the old me. His etheric cleansing process is quick and easy and allows for instant access to the valuable information that empowers you to create the clearing and changes most required. I would recommend this process to absolutely anyone on a spiritual path and to individuals caught on the hamster wheel of life, where little progress is seen for the amount of effort put in. Paul's cleansing is precise and swiftly creates the shift you've battled to create for yourself."

"Your coaching took my life to another dimension and I live with my head high because of you.Thank you."
Charles Burton, Personal Trainer, Dancer, European Amateur Natural Bodybuilding Champion
“Paul, Thank you for your inspiring, in-depth and highly informative session last week, you taught me to unblock all my inner fears and to know why they were there in the first place. You are a calm influence, and it was your confidence which inspired me so much, as you are not at all egoistic in your guidance. You have shown me the side of myself I always wanted to greet, but didn’t believe was there.
You gave me the greatest gift I could ever have received which is to know my own being, and this is why I will always be grateful, and never forget our work last week. I now have found the path to not only happiness, but wisdom too. They say happy is the wise man, and I might add happy is this wise woman, through meeting a wise man, thank you again.”
Georgie Shellis, Harrow
Money barely represents what a single session is worth."
“I cannot echo enough what Naomi in Hove says ” Money barely represents what a single session is worth”. What you have done for me has literally changed my life with it’s amazing instant and personalised affect. My physical pain after one week of the session has been halved, so impressive that my Osteopath noticed it, my back less rigid for instance. And as for my formerly traumatic life, well now I understand my purpose, why things happened in childhood etc. I know feel like a sea bird observing its life, perched high on a cliff top, and like that bird, I feel that I have the entire navigational control of my life. For the first time I might add in forty two years so far! Thank you Paul, immensely,”
Emma Andrews – Brighton
"I would never have expected it but after 10 years of emotional dependence, I am now totally not bothered by it, this is amazing!”
“I already feel very differently. It can be hard to come to terms with change when it's not what you want, even though you know resistance is futile, but now I can see where I'm headed, it's easier to accept that the change is already in progress and that it's a good thing, thanks again.”
Gemma (via telephone), London
AMAZON: 5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended
C. L. Eveleigh (Reading, UK)
This review is from: Learn to Love & Be Loved in Return: Making Relationships Last (Paperback)
This is a book about much more than romantic relationships. It is written with wonderful honesty and sincerity about love, the breakdown of relationships and how we relate to one another. It is a book that provides great insights into our own behaviour, as well as how we relate to others. It immensely readable, and I'm finding myself dipping into it over and over again for the many ideas, exercises and insights within its covers. Highly recommended whether you are in a relationship, just starting one, or looking for a relationship that will last.
Paul’s engaging style and personable character perfectly suit professional coaching. I have completed a recent programme. My performance, at work, has gone from strength to strength. I am now equipped with the tools to take me to previously unimagined business heights. Thank you Paul!
Robert Syrad, Erevena, Executive Search Services
Paul’s genius for business coaching helped me get clarity on a number of issues very quickly. I trust Paul as my coach. I appreciate his honesty and business expertise. In particular, I really value Paul’s flexibility in stepping into the role of a mentor, when he can see the benefit of doing so.
Is there any point in me saying that Paul comes highly recommended?
